“The Supremettes” tribute to Diana Ross & The Supremes

American Motown group The Supremes recorded 12 US No.1 hits between 1964 and 1969, including an unprecedented five consecutive chart toppers. Against a backdrop of the meteoric rise of Motown Records, The Supremes were the most commercially successful of Motown’s acts and the most successful American vocal band, with 12 number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

Florence ‘Blondie’ Ballard, Diana Ross and Mary Wilson met as children and in early 1959, the three girls along with Betty McGlown, started ‘The Primettes’, an all-girl singing group. They auditioned for the fledgling Motown label and in January 1961, they were signed as ‘The Supremes’.

They became the epitome of Motown glamour, appealing to Black and white audiences alike. By 1965 The Supremes had made history by achieving five consecutive number one hits and Motown was the most successful Black-owned enterprise in America. Berry Gordy, founder of Motown had seen the commercial potential of creating a pop version of rhythm and blues music which, while still being generated by Black culture, could also cross the race divide to attract a white teenage audience. This became ‘The Sound of Young America’ that was shared irrespective of class or race.

Among others The Supremes had number ones with “Baby Love”, “Stop! in the name of love”, “Come see about me”, “Ain’t no mountain high enough” and “You can’t hurry love”
